Cardi B met with US presidential aspirant Bernie Sanders on Monday to film a 2020 presidential campaign video.
The campaign was aimed at appealing to young voters ahead of the 2020 US elections, Bernie Sanders told CNN in an interview as he arrived for the shoot.
He said: “We (are) working on a way to involve more young people in the political process. The future of America depends on young people. They are voting in large numbers, but not large enough numbers.”
Sanders said he and Cardi B spoke about a range of issues, including canceling student debt, climate change and raising the minimum wage.
The video was filmed at the TEN Nail Bar, a local nail salon owned by two black women.
After their meeting, Cardi B took to Instagram to thank Sanders .
Sharing a photo of them sitting together, deep in discussion, Cardi wrote: “Not me, US. Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders for sitting with me and sharing your plans on how you will change this country. A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you had the opportunity to have a question answered by a democratic candidate what would it be ? I got a lot of submission and selected the most popular questions to get answered. Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all. Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country.LETS LEARN OUR CANDIDATES!”
